“Not a 66, but 2 under, I felt like it was solid. Little bit of nerves like to start the round, but made a couple pars and then birdied the third hole to kind of settle in. I the golf course is starting to
firm up a little bit. The wind wasn’t blowing quite as much, so maybe those things kind of balanced out. Yeah, all in all, pretty pleased with 2 under par.”

“Not being in a final pairing in a while, it was nice to sort of get that — even though it’s not the final round, it’s still like the weekend and I feel like everything’s heightened a little bit. So I was pleased with the way I sort of, I feel like I handled a little bit of the pressure and I think that will benefit me tomorrow.

“But at the end of the day really, I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been trying to do all week, which is just enjoy being out there, not try too hard and sort of see what happens at the end.

“But this is really the reason I think I enjoy playing professional golf, like being around the lead on the weekend with a chance to win, you have a little nerves, but I think that’s why we all like to test ourselves and see where we are, so it will be a fun day tomorrow.”

Fellow American Chad Ramey lies in second place after signing for a 69 followed by Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas at 11-under whose bogey-free 65 was the round of the week.

“Less wind, that’s for sure,” said Vegas. “You know, wind, it was blowing but it wasn’t blowing anywhere close to what it’s been blowing the whole week. Once the wind’s going to be that way, easy to get the mind on being a little more aggressive. Some pretty good shots, made a few good putts, but mainly just keeping a pretty aggressive mentality
throughout the round.
